Mileage on tires

I have Goodyear 670's on my RV. I had them put on a little over three years ago and now have just under 60K miles on them. No sidewall cracking but did have a rivering problem and had the fronts moved to the rear and rear to the front about 30K ago. I didn't find much with a search so will ask you guys. I know this will vary depending on drivers, speed, etc. but what would be a normal expectation for the number of miles on these tires? They are 22.5 wheels but having a brain glitch and don't recall the rest of the size numbers.

Wow, that's a lot of miles for an RV in 3 years. You might be one of the few that actually wears out your tires instead of them aging out. As long and you have 2/32nds or more of tread you should be good to go. Even the RV tires have wear bars in the tread to tell you when they are no longer good.

I have a trip planed, about 10K miles and will keep an eye out on tire wear. Grand kids in Florida, Maine, & California and visiting a lot of places along the way. Yes, I think I'll wear them out before they age out.

I just figure the fuel is part of the entertainment expense along with maintenance. Yes, lots of dollars but we worked hard for many years in order to enjoy this part of our life.

I just replaced my Michelin XRV's at 83k miles, they where at 3/32, not sure how it compares with the goodyears.

I would just check and see how much tire you have left.

My Michelin's are at 90K and still going strong. I expect 130K+ out of the tires, unless they time out first.

I do not have the miles 38,000 on my Michelins but drive tires are 10 years and still good thread and sidewalls, steer tires changed last year because of steering wear.
I will never meet Gary's mileage I am to old and may not have coach that long.

Here are some good video's on tire safety and wear.

Hi Roger ! I'm hoping you will out live us all . You are a great asset here, and I hope you continue to offer your years of experience even after you park that MACA for the last time.

My handy dandy little tire thread checker device shows, depending on which tire, 5/32 to 7/32 at about 58K on the Goodyear 670's. I doubt I'll get the 83K that you did.
